postinstall warns you about the directories in question (although
it doesn't actually migrate or remove them), which should suffice.

I use a local image as well.  However, I don't overwrite XFree86.xpm.
Instead, I provide my own (e.g, "NetBSD.xpm") and change the
'xlogin*logoFileName' resource in /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources.
